A Collection of Traps & Hazards (D&D 5e)

The world your players are exploring should be filled with dangers other than monsters. This week on the Campaign Trail I wanted to share some traps and hazards I have used in my campaigns. The D&D 5th edition Dungeon Master Guide and the published adventures provide us with a limited number of traps and hazards, but I thought this collection might be interesting too. Some of these I have included in previous articles, but I thought collecting them in one place would be handy.

Beware: Hazards Ahead (System Agnostic)

A guest post by Bobby Evans

In my experience I’ve noticed that a lot of first time or novice GMs lean heavily on the combat side of most systems, but there is so much more.  Sure that plate armored fighter has faced off against a dragon, but what about quicksand.  Your wizard might fly right over pit traps, but heaven help him is he catches a cold.  Hazards can come in a lot of shapes and sizes each one just as harsh as the last.
